We have Shroomage 

Posted by Pastor Ron Tuesday, October 25, 2011 7:00:00 AM
We have Shroomage In just a one week it went from a 'whatisit ' to Shroom City! Now that I know what it is and that it is edible... I'm still not ready to stick a fork in it. What if Wikipedia really can't be trusted to provide accurate information! Oh My!!! Marilyn said that I need to mention this is... read more

Nosey Noserson 

Posted by Pastor Ron Monday, October 24, 2011 10:43:00 AM
Nosey Noserson What some folks call 'caring concern' others might call 'being nosey'. Intent is important IMO (in my opinion.) What is motivating the interest in someone else's private affairs? The closer the relationship ties the more valid and even necessary the 'need to know'. The more disconnected ... read more

Seeing isn't believing 

Posted by Pastor Ron Sunday, October 23, 2011 9:04:00 AM
Seeing isn't believing At least not in the age of Digital Cameras and Photoshop. And sometimes it's hard to believe what you are actually seeing right there before your very eyes: Giant Lupines on the Kenai Peninsula! Here in the Western Washington we are used to seeing evergreen trees that tower... read more

Eating Snails 

Posted by Pastor Ron Saturday, October 22, 2011 8:47:00 AM
Eating Snails Kid friendly escargot ~ Snail Cupcakes!. Marilyn is doing a cupcake decorating demonstration today at MCC as part of the ladies Frugal Fellowship. I've tried the real thing in a restaurant and it isn't bad if you can get the image of a slug in a shell out of your mind. Admittedly... read more

Tender Affection 

Posted by Pastor Ron Friday, October 21, 2011 10:21:00 AM
Tender Affection Sorting through pictures looking for one to post today I came across this candid taken almost four years ago. Josh and Serena still have that sweetness and tender affection between them. I could probably get this same picture today. My advice to all married couples: stay in love with... read more

Oh No! More stuff 

Posted by Pastor Ron Thursday, October 20, 2011 10:31:00 AM
Oh No! More stuff Do you ever feel like you are drowning in stuff. There is just too much stuff. We haven't even been able to stack `n` store much less use all the stuff we have and here comes another boat load. Is it time to take inventory of your storage unit / life ? read more

Eat a Smurf's dwelling? 

Posted by Pastor Ron Wednesday, October 19, 2011 10:00:00 AM
Eat a Smurf's dwelling? I'm usually not inclined to eat things I find in the front yard but this thing had me curious. Searching the internet for edible Smurf houses lead me to tentatively identify this as a Birch Bolete. Sure enough ~ it is growing under a birch tree. But I think l'll pass on eating it and... read more

Cold shoulder 'christianity' 

Posted by Pastor Ron Tuesday, October 18, 2011 8:51:00 AM
Cold shoulder 'christianity' A visitor comes into church and no one greets them with a smile ~ only a sideways glance. No one sits near them ~ so they sit alone. No one gets to know them after the church service ~ everyone is busy talking to their own kind friends. I hope this never happens in your church. I hope... read more

Beauty is where you find it 

Posted by Pastor Ron Monday, October 17, 2011 8:43:00 AM
Beauty is where you find it Our local deciduous fall colors smear from pale green>sickly yellow>mushy brown. Fortunately we have emerald walls of evergreens to distract us from this less than exciting color palette. When I see fall pictures from other parts of the country I want to take a road trip. Even if... read more

A crab all dressed up 

Posted by Pastor Ron Sunday, October 16, 2011 7:00:00 AM
A crab all dressed up A crab all dressed up and looking good is still a crab, even with a cute red facinator. Of course if you are surrounded by smoked salmon and are being served on a silver platter as horderves we'll be happy to have you join us. This fancy foretaste of the coming feast was served at... read more
